Thanks, Ray2021!Lots of expensive answers here...
Don't let these put you off... my first answer used rather simple combo and by no means they have to be L's! Any general purpose zoom plus one standard lens is a good deal for me. The second post with a listing was simply a joke to follow up on "analogies" post someone started.
The best lens is the one you have mounted and ready to go...not some pie-in-the-sky object that you have to fork out big bucks for.
You know, even though I wish there were a few Ls in my bag (will get there eventually), I still have a long way to go before it is my lenses, not myself, what is keeping me from taking better pics.
I appreciate your concern!
